Kevin E. Lawson
Praise for the Book
"This is a remarkable book which is not only well-researched but delightfully engaging. With warmth and wisdom gained from years of personal experience, Kevin Lawson has written the ultimate survival guide for local church staffers. I only wish it has been around thirty years ago when I was starting out. I'll definitely be recommending this outstanding book to every youth pastor I know."
—Wayne Rice, co-founder of Youth Specialties; Director, Understanding Your Teenager
"Kevin Lawson has done a great service to the church. Based on solid research, he discusses eight major aspects of the associate staff ministry. He illustrates each with relevant comments by practioners and provides ptactical applications for follow-through. Every associate staff member or anyone who thinks God is calling them to this ministry should read this book. In fact, pastoral supervisors and board members have special chapters devoted to them. The qualities Lawson presents are very relevant and his writing is positive and uplifting. He proves that associates can do more than survive, they can thrive!"
—Robert J. Radcliffe, Western Seminary and author of Effective Ministry as an Associate Pastor: Making Beautiful Music on the Pastoral Team
